The owners and host Tosca and Gary are very hands-on , make you feel at home.
Room 8 Wi-Fi network was down, otherwise there is nothing to dislike about the place.
Breakfast was excellent and well presented Location was within 10minutes of our function
Struggled a wee bit entering at the gate- not enough space to turn into parking when using a Large Van
Gary was Amazing. Very warm and caring individual. Our stay was only favorable due to the hospitality received from Gary. He has a good heart with a very friendly approach to people. The place was beautiful, which is expected from most B&B's and Guesthouses etc. But when thinking of the whole experience it was just Gary that we can give accolades to for making our stay enjoyable. The main house is beautiful and fortunately there are only two rooms that are under the roof parking. The breakfast is standard, not buffet, however Gary cooked up a delicious meal and his hospitality was amazing as always. Gary saw us out on departure and was Amazing throughout.
The location is in a very small street. On arrival we pressed the intercom to enter the premises however the neighbor across the road needed to enter her property. As a result we were forced to move our car so she can get into the property. On returning back to the intercom we were met with an very abrupt lady (will not disclose her name even though known); who was clearly upset with us for not being at the intercom when she came on. This is what set off a distasteful taste in the start of our trip, so as we all know if things start off distasteful its going to end that way. We were then met with a disgruntled lady who appeared still upset that she had to walk to the gate to meet us. We remained pleasant however already feeling discomfort. She then took us to our room which is a beautiful room. Very spacious and private, however there was a smell of damp in the air. The room is situated under a roof parking so that could have been the reason, however on my stating there is a damp smell in the room, this made the lady get even more riled up. She offered to take us to another room however she was already at this point trying to be helpful however in a very unfriendly disgruntled manner. She had already deducted the full amount for the accommodation, even though booking.com, stated we would only be charged when we get to the location, so we were forced to take it. We were offered a better room but by this time were so uncomfortable at being there due to the reaction from her. The second room that was offered was warmer with no damp smell as it was in the main house. We got ourselves ready and left the premises. She did not offer us the WIFI password like other B&B's and guesthouses etc offer. We had to ask Gary for it in the morning before we left. We were basically greeted with a smile by Gary but not from the Lady throughout our stay!
The garden, the land lady and lord (so friendly people). I extended 2 days more in this lodge.
